Any politician who promises to give you something that is *paid for by other taxpayers* is corrupt, whether their donors give a million dollars or five dollars. In fact, given the value of the stuff being given away by liberal democrats, the ROI for the small donor is huge.

College students who give Al Franken $20 with the expectation he's going to "pass legislation" (as he says) to cut the interest on their college loan, or other deadbeats who get government-subsidized health...

Jason beat me to it, as I too am soon going Galt.

Bad idea. What they should have done was require 500 signatures on a petition as a requirement to get on the ballot. Citizen participation and all that. Now it just looks like they're saying they only want people of means to run for office.

"Bachmann Suggests Gov't Wants To Use Migrant Children For 'Medical Experimentation'"

Posted on 07/31/14 at 01:00 pm in response to Against the über-presidency: Minnesota Republicans vote to sue Obama

During the campaign of 2012, Obama and his followers like Al Franken, repeatedly lied to the American people by telling us that if we liked our plan, we could keep our plan. That was a blatant lie to get re-elected because he knew that if the truth was known prior to the election, he and a bunch of other democrats would have been soundly defeated.

Fast forward to 2014. The number of citizens affected by the poorly-designed and implemented Obamacare is relatively small, limited to...
